Yingge Rock Hike


From Banqiao we will take the train out to Yingge Station and begin our hike up to Yingge Rock and Wanghushan. According to legend, the rock formation, formerly known as Parrot Rock, Eagle Brother Stone and Warbler Brother Stone, produced a miasma that disoriented, sickened, and sometimes killed passers-by. One day, General Koxinga led his army past the rock. Caught in the miasma, he ordered his cannon to fire against the rock, breaking the neck of the stone eagle. The miasma lifted and the troops continued on their march. Thanks to Koxinga, we will not encounter this legendary miasma--we will enjoy some beautiful views during this moderate hike that includes some stairs and dirt trails. Along the way we will see an ancient Banyan Tree with many branches and lush leaves. For our return, we will make our way down to Shanjia Station for the train back to Banqiao. Wear proper hiking shoes and clothing. Bring your Easy Card for the train, plus water, lunch and rain/sun protection as needed.
